Find successive state indices and costs

Since R2023a



    [succIDS,costs] = successors(graph,currID) finds the state indices succIDS and the cost of all states costs that are connected to the specified state currID using the directed link.

    Find successive state indices and costs based on a state name.

    [succIDS,costs] = successors(navGraphObj,"G")
    succIDS = 2×1
    costs = 2×1

    Find the state vectors of the successive states.

    states = index2state(navGraphObj,succIDS)
    states = 2×3
        8.0000    2.0000    0.7218
        8.0000    7.0000    0.6741

    Input Arguments

    collapse all

    Graph object, specified as a navGraph object.

    Current state, specified as a positive integer, representing a state index, or as a string scalar or character vector representing a state name.

    Data Types: double | char | string

    Output Arguments

    collapse all

    Successive state indices, returned as a column vector of positive integers.

    Data Types: double

    Cost of all successive states, returned as a numeric column vector of the same size as succIDS. The function computes costs using the Weight or LinkWeightFcn property of the navGraph object graph.

    Data Types: double
